Welcome to ART-iculated, the Deviant Art group dedicated to action figure customization. If you are a customizer, action figure enthusiast, or just plain like toys, then feel free to join (Include a brief reason for joining). Upon membership approval, feel free to submit your custom figures, thoughts, or suggest fellow DA customizers. Any suggestions or comments you may have for the group are also welcome.
CUSTOMIZATION - a.k.a. known as "kitbashing" or my favorite "plastic surgery" is a term that refers to (at a minimum) the process of significantly altering an action figure or toy. This can range from a simple paint job or head swap to a completely built-from-scratch project.
I'm not big on rules...BUT...
Please try to keep submissions restricted to CUSTOMIZED articulated figures, some related work such as "stactions", figurines, dioramas and vehicles/accessories are welcome. Please only submit completed works, not works in progress (W.I.P.s). It can be difficult sometimes to discern a custom work from a production made toy, I will do my best to weed out submissions that do not meet the criteria of a customized toy. However, I am not familiar with all toylines so I will give the benefit of the doubt to the creator when I am not sure about the originality of the entry. Anyways, welcome, come on in and take a look around.
All new members submit your work to the "Featured" folder, you will be limited to one entry initially. I will create your own folders for you once you have started contributing.
